Miracle Monday


Today, I would like to share the miracle of a new friendship that God has blessed me with recently. My new friend is myself!! All of my life I have suffered with low self esteem, I hated myself. I have always thought that I was ugly, fat, stupid, just plain no good. I lost my hair due to thyroid disease, so a few weeks ago, my husband shaved my head. That experience was very emotional for us, and brought us even closer. God has been right by my side through this entire journey. As I look in the mirror, at the woman I have now become, I slowly begin to smile. I may not be a beautiful woman with long flowing luscious hair, or short cute curls. But, my Father is the King, so that makes me a princess. I consider myself a hairless princess warrior, fighting battles in my Fathers army. lol I am who I am, and my Father loves me this way. Be blessed everyone, and keep looking for miracles, they are all around you.

You have the most beautiful heart.. and all those that have grown to love you looks at you as a beautiful daughter of God.....

Wonderful post.

I just wanted to thank you for praying for my mom. She went home on Saturday to be with the Lord and I know your prayers were very special to me.

You sound like me. Doing this "Calm My Anxious Heart" study has given me the opportunity to open up about the way I've perceived myself and to try harder to love myself. I told my friend Patty that I envied her because she is so little. I said, "I bet you never looked in the mirror and thought you were fat." She told me that she thought I was beautiful. Well, I know that God made me, he was the designer so I have to start believing that He doesn't make mistakes. If I dislike myself, I'm disrespecting the Master.
Hugs, Mama Bear
